Space-specific communication technologies meet the demanding technical requirements of next gen space robotics only partially while showing disadvantages in terms of the strategic requirements for cost, openness and vendor diversity. EtherCAT is considered to be the most widely used Ethernet-based standard for motion communication, and it is also widely used in robotics. In this paper, we will describe how the EtherCAT technology meets the specific requirements of space robotics. In addition, we intend to show how the space industry benefits from agreeing on this technology for robotics.
